For the 100th episode, the first guests on the show were re-invited. This picture is from a WFA board meeting also showing our President Ken Hunsberger. Gord was stuck in snow at home so this picture is OK.
We talked about the issues from 3 years ago and where they were now. Played a couple “chicken” songs on Marks behalf and Gord had a couple Mose Allison tunes for his pre-recorded section of the show.
Gord Grant is “da house” today. Today is Remembrance Day. Gord brought some tunes and his stories of how WW1 affected his family. We hope that these stories are representative of how the World Wars affected many rural families.
Betty Butcher is in the studio today. Betty has lots of experience bringing the news of agriculture to the public. She continues to provide her skills as a speaker/motivator. We also played some great tunes.
The The Waterloo Federation of Agriculture held their AGM in the New Dundee Community Centre on Oct 16. Our guest speaker was Gary Doyle. His topic was “how the media reports on agriculture”. Other reports were from the Waterloo Junior Farmers, Waterloo Rural Women, and the Waterloo/North Dumfries Plowmens Association.
Nic Weber and prop were in studio today. You’ll have to listen in to find out about the bird. We talked about all things Junior Farmer in the Region and Ontario. Lots of great activities going on. We played a nice mix of country and rock that Nic brought with him.
Sue Foxton is a rural municipal politician. Agriculture is a topic that crops up (pardon the pun,,, it’s a little corny) in rural municipalities that urban jurisdictions would not usually need to deal with. Sue brought along four great tunes.
